You’ve got a friend in me, May SOTM blog hop

Welome to the SOTM blog hop! You will find more than 50 consultants participating this month! You should have arrived from Kathleen’s blog. If you get lost along the way, Melinda has a full list of blogs on her blog.

This month’s stamp set has 5 different stamps, that have so many possibilities! I found a fun little packet type giftable, and wanted to make it more!!

Isn’t this fun? I think it would be a perfect little gift for teachers! (and will probably use it for JUST that! The student teacher in Audrey’s classroom will be leaving at the end of the week, and I think this might just fit the bill for an appreciation gift!)

As you can see, it hold a via packet, but this is one of the big packets, not the little ones!

I used scraps from my Jubilee cards that I made back in March for the front pocket, just needed to cut them into banner shapes!

I stamped the image from the stamp set two times, colored with one of the blue watercolor pencils, and then cut them up! Then I layered them with some 3-D foam tape.

Remember how I said I wanted this to be ‘more’? Well, the one that I got the idea from, was just the packet. But I wanted to be able to have a card with it too, but wanted it to be all one! So, that’s just exactly what I did!

This card folds into thirds! This is the inside shot, and as you can see, the card is standing up! This is a great way to be able to display the front, and still have plenty of room on the inside for the kids to write on! I added a few more scraps from the paper on the inside, so it wasn’t just plain.

Here are two different shots of the back. The first is with the card completely closed (and leaning against something). The twine helps to keep the card closed. The right is with the card open, and you seeing a side view. No, you aren’t seeing crooked, the card really is tilted, just a bit! I cut off just the smallest wedge of a triangle from the bottom of both of the sides, so that it would sit nicely when open.

Isn’t this a fun little detail/cluster? It’s cut directly from one of the papers in the Jubilee pack! I thought it worked well, and gave just a bit more dimension to the card/packet!

I would love to hear what you think about this fun little giftable! Leave me a comment, and let me know what you think!

Next up in the blog hop is Michelle (two in a row!), and I am certain that she has something fabulous to show you! So, hop on over to her blog next!

Thanks for stopping by!
